For horror fans in particular, Bloody Disgusting has a cool thread going of Black horror creators. Check it out and find some cool artists to support, and if you’re a black artist, tag your work in the thread!

Birth. Movies. Death. Is running a fundraiser this week to raise money for Black Lives Matter. Donate to BLM, send your donation receipt to BMD for a chance to win one of fifteen epic cinematic prize bundles.

Journalist Jane Lytvynenko has a running thread, fact checking viral posts:

 

I came across these as I was looking for ways to support, and this is absolutely not a comprehensive list. Of course, do your own research. This is personally a way for me to keep track of some of the things I find and thought some of you might be interested in/find it useful as well. I will probably be updating this as I come across more, feel free to send me your suggestions as well!
